Main stream Australian spirituality

Interesting during my break at work, I think it was on a friday. The mid-morning show had some sort of mystic on who was reading peoples future and pasts. There were a number of thoughts that went through my mind.
::This stuff is now mainstream, its on the major television chanells.
::Would there be room for a Christian "Prophet" on mainstream TV to do this stuff. (I have seen it very early in the morning, but it is surrounded by "Christian worship", and a Christian hyped up audience.
:: There is an awareness of spirituality with Australians. Else why would the networks put this stuff on.
:: The way the guy spoke over peoples lives was not that much different to Christians giving some sort of prophetic word.

I know what you mean. I have thought similar in regards to Christian books in 'New Age ' stores.

I think the problem is that we have so damaged our credibility that we are seen as having very little (of worth) to say and have actually marginalized ourselves.

I think it's a terrible scenario but that would be my take on why we wouldn't get on!
